Office Communicator Custom Status Editor v1.5.3 Released!

This releases address the issue where it would not run unless as an administrator. The problem is it modifies the system registry, and places files for communicator to find which require elevated privileges.

If you had User Access Control (UAC) enabled on Vista or 7, the program wouldn’t work as expected. Now it’s fixed, so permission is requested properly.

Also, I threw together a portable version of Office Communicator Custom Status Editor so an installer is no longer needed. This weighs in at less than 35kb.

Hope it helps another couple of thousand people have custom status or custom presences on Microsoft Office Communicator 2007 R2.
